Forum: GratefulDead Subject: From the Cool Transitions Department

Pretty sure Stratocaster mentioned this one eons ago, but I was just listening to it today en route to the lake for a swim w/the dog (who is the Grendel in "GC", btw), and was blown away by both the cool and unusual transition AND the overall performance of both these tumes from this '76 show.

EYES>MUSIC NEVER STOPPED.

Ever done before or since? I dunno, but this is one hell of a cool segue on a hot summer's day!

Thanks - I'll have to get to this after DHM's '73 rec.

Looks like there is a good AUD of the 10-15-76 as well

It even has a 'review' from the taper hisself

The microphones were on the front of the balcony, right next to the soundboard. I like the sound of this audience tape better than the soundboard. I would recommend some equalization before burning: the bass below 80 Hz or so needs a lot of boost (up to 12 dB at 30-60 Hz), and the high end above 6-8 kHz needs a little (3-6 dB at 8-16kHz). YMMV.

Wow. Nice to know I've been talking to a dog for years now.

Grendel's Best Friend's Choice is more like it.

Pat Grendel on the head for me......he/she has great taste in music.

Done and done.

Don't worry about talking to him. I do it all the time. He's the one who turned me on to 10/29/77. I came downstairs one day and found him with headphones on over his massive ears...I said "what the hell do you think you're doing?", and he said "dude, just shut up and listen to this version of EYES."

It was so good I never got around to questioning him on how he was able to talk, much less work the stereo.

My dog Arlo has not wanted to glut his maw so much lately due to a rocks- on-the-river incident Saturday. He's had some pain, but got fixed up with some meds and a sporty red bandage for his split-pad paw, so he seems in better spirits, except for the Elizabethan collar. He does like Tennesse Jed except for the dog-kicking part.

Interesting history behind the name:

Grendel is one of three antagonists, along with Grendel's mother and the dragon, in the Anglo-Saxon epic poem Beowulf (AD 700–1000). In the poem, Grendel is feared by all but Beowulf.

It's a great old tale.

Unfortunately the original version of Beowulf is an impossible slog of a thing to get thru...I'd recommend a novel by John Gardner called "Grendel" which tells the whole tale in a more readable style, and with a twist: It's all told from the monster's point of view!

Hey GC,

I looked that up once before and could not find that transition was ever done again. Shame because it really seems like a natural when you listen to that Shrine show. The other unique transition of that show is the TOO>Comes A Time>Franklin's.

I wrote a review of this show a couple years ago and those transitions were the focus. i suspect others have discussed them as well.
